This spacious, bright, one bedroom apartment with kitchenette in a quiet Tzfat neighborhood has views of the Sea of Galilee and Tiberius. Five-minute walk to the bus station, 15 minutes to the Old City. There's a little climb to get here, but the view is great!
This simple (clean, comfortable, smoke free, but not a fancy-shmancy) apartment is spacious and private. We provide a friendly place to rest while you enjoy the rarefied air of Tzfat (Safed, Tsfat, Zefat or any other way you want to spell it!). Close enough to the old city to walk, and enjoy the tourist stuff, yet out of the way for down time and quiet. We have a yard with sky chairs, dog, cat, chickens and you may even have a sighting of the tortoise.
This apartment is the upstairs above our home so we are close at hand if there's anything we can help you with.
This rental does not include breakfast. You'll find a fridge to keep your food fresh. If you're staying for Shabbat, there is a hotplate (also called a plata/blech) to keep your food warm. There's not a cooking facility and we're not stocked with pots and pans. You will find disposable plates, cups, and cutlery.
If there's one thing we're happy about, it's that our guests typically share how well they sleep! This is your spot for a restful way to spend your time in Tzfat, after a busy day of traveling northern Israel, shopping in the galleries, or just to get away.
You actually have two balconies. We didn't picture the small one with a view of the fortress (metsuda) because the balcony with the view of the Sea of Galilee is so wonderful. It's not always clear to see the whole view in the day, but the night will reveal the sparkling lights of Tiberius. Listen for the sounds of the hyrax (also called rock rabbits) who live in the mountain side next to our home.
You are invited to enjoy our garden with its sky chairs hanging from the walnut tree or the hammock. We have a dog, a cat, a tortoise, and hens.
If you like to walk, it's an easy walk into the Old City and Artists' Quarter. On Wednesdays (usually) enjoy the Tzfat Shuk, like a farmer's market. It's a 3-5 minute walk from our home.
Interaction with guests
We are nearby if you need us for advice about Tzfat, or anything else we might be able to help you with. We're happy to hear from you. Let us know if you need anything, otherwise enjoy your privacy. You'll set the tone according to your needs. On the occasion that we can not personally greet you, we have a friendly substitute.
Other things to note
The space is light and bright but most windows can be dimmed with shutters (trisim in Hebrew).
Directions with Waze or other maps will not quite get you to our door. There's not much that is logical about the town of Tzfat and finding your parking place will require a phone call or written directions which can be provided in advance.
